Sadhana is a second year MA student who is an old soul trapped inside a young person. She’s obsessed with finding sociological explanations in seemingly common cultural practices and is interested in gender studies, development and policy-making. She strongly identifies with the spirit of a panda and loves blinding sunflowers. In her free time, you can find her watching food videos, making endless lists, roaming through quaint bookstores and fangirling over Michelle Obama or AOC.
In the Indian imagination, an ‘Aunty’ is a middle-aged, usually fat woman who is married and has children. Young women, especially unmarried ones, either do not want to associate with the term or are expected to steer clear of it.
